A wonderful coffee estate with cottages, which makes it ideal for a quiet weekend getaway.

The rooms in the cottages are large and well ventilated, and open out into a large hall with easy chairs and a wide view of the valley. The food is excellent right from breakfast and all the way through to dinner. The staff are eager to serve up homely malnad fare.

The estate too is a wonder to explore, with its verdant coffee bushes and abundance of parrots. They also organise estate walks to take you through coffee and pepper cultivation and make the experience educative with samples of ripened coffee fruits, fiery bird's eye chilies and mild green pepper pods. The estate also has clear walking paths drawn out with helpful boards at each crossing, and so it leaves you free to explore the entire estate in the company of Blackie, the friendly estate mutt.

There's a bonfire every night and a barbecue on Saturdays, with smoky chicken in a mildly spicy marinade and grilled paneer.

The Hidden Valley like the name says it is a hidden treasure. It's a small place admits greenery and hills. It was one of the most amazing weekend getaways from Bangalore. The place is located near a hill trek spot, water fall, heritage sites. The food and service were really nice. Courteous staff with spacious and clean rooms. Open area to party/play. Lake to boat in and this place has everything. And its amazingly CHEAP!!! It's worth having a mini vacation.

This was the best weekend getaway we have had in Chikmagalur. The area surrounded with beautiful greenery and the silence away from city was heavenly.

Service was awesome and food was excellent. Couldn't have asked for more.

And the staff was as humble as you can get. Would really love to visit the place again. Just waiting for the renovation to get completed.:-)

Though this time we couldn't have much activities done due to having other plans of our own, but would definitely like to do some more activities next time.

A very much convenient place for the tourists if your are travelling from Mangalore/Udupi location. A typical resort kind located between the plantations and you can also enjoy boating. You can rock on the night party. Staff are really helpful and adjustable. Food was delicious with barbecue and good drinks and music. We played camp fire as it was arranged by the hotel. They had also provided the guide during the tour.

The resort is located 20 kms away from the city which makes it a perfect place to relax and enjoy with family members. It is very good and in particular the service was awesome. People were very helpful and always ready to offer service. We did enjoyed spending lot of time in property rather than visiting places. Though, we did go to one place and also visited their property which is very big and it has a small pond with ducks.
